I have a site where I display the same exact footer on every page. There is one exception, though. On one certain page I need to change one small part of the footer.
I figure the simplest way to do this is to check, within the footer, whether I'm on that page or not. It wouldn't make sense to change the whole entire footer for that page since I'm only changing a tiny part of the footer, deep within the footer.
The problem is that whenever I call
the_id() from within the footer, it gives me an ID that clearly doesn't match the post I'm on. It always gives me
89, no matter what page I'm on in the site.
I figure I must be doing something wrong. Can anyone tell me what it is?
